Description Matt Domsch 2000-07-17 14:34:03 UTC
I get the following messages if fsck fails at startup, and it drops you to 
a bash shell.

bash: tput: command not found
bash: dircolors: command not found
bash: id: command not found
[: -: unary operator expected

The / partition is mounted, but /usr isn't, and these all live in /usr/bin.
Just kind of annoying, but doesn't really cause a problem.  Since these 
are all getting sourced from /etc/{profile,bashrc}, could simple logic be 
added to test for the existence of these programs before calling them?
